Sector 7: Ha Ji Won, "People Said that My Character Was Scarier Than the Monster"
Through “Sector 7” Ha Ji Won confessed that she wanted to try and show a female warrior that was as good as Hollywood actresses. Ha Ji Won appeared on “Baek Ji-Yeon’s People Inside” that will be broadcast on August 14th.
She stated, “I heard that it’s better to portray a Hollywood actress more than an Asian actress for Sector 7, I wanted to break out of that mold. However, after watching the movie my friends told me that I was scarier than the monster. I guess I was pretty scary in the film after all.”
She continued, “For the film I had to act by myself for almost two weeks. It was really lonely. If there is no romance in the film, it feels a bit lonely. Although it’s fun to do an action movie, if there is no romance in the film it feels a bit lonely.”
She also stated that she had a hard time getting rid of the Sector 7 character in preparation for her role of “Secret Garden.”
Here is the synopsis for Sector 7:
In Sector 7, an underwater oil field located south of Jeju Island, Hae-jun (Portrayed by Ha Ji Won) is working as a marine equipment manager on an oil prospecting ship called Eclipse. Joining the crew later is Jeong-man (Portrayed by Ahn Sung-Ki), a former colleague of Hae-jun’s father, assigned to Eclipse as captain. Though his job is to oversee the withdrawal of the ship, he suggests conducting some drilling one last time. After 3 weeks of preparation, Hae-jun takes new recruit underwater, but he sinks to the bottom of the sea when his equipment fails. Shortly after crew members begin to turn up dead, one by one, their bodies viciously mutilated. What the few survivors soon discover is a transparent underwater creature they encountered once before. The viral monster infiltrated the ship through the drilling pipe and has been feeding on the crew to survive. For Hae-jun and his colleagues, a fight for their lives begins.
